Kama is God of love, passion & desire. Kama symbolizes aesthetic pleasure of the senses – touch, smell, flavor, vision and sound. Food is our most intimate connection to nature and a source of everlasting memories.

We bring the fresh, bold and authentic flavors of Indian cuisine made from scratch to La Grange and surrounding suburbs. Our menu highlights cuisine from various regions of India and its fusion with American favorites. We offer over 10 distinct sauces and chutneys made with our proprietary fresh ground spice blends and fresh ingredients all made from scratch. We use a charcoal Tandoori grill to cook all meats and bake fresh bread to order. Modern, vibrant, contemporary and chic are the words used to describe Kama’s dining room. A perfect place to bring friends and family, impress a date and out of town guest..

    Black pepper chicken was the worst I had in my life. Kerala fish curry is just tamarind no other flavor. Eggplant was just tomatoes chutney. Sorry never coming back and do not recommend.

    Food was amazing!! Service was slow and super spotty- even though a weeknight. They also were blaring music which destroyed the ambiance. Again it was not busy. I friend and I met their because we wanted to talk. I'd go again for the food but eat outside (if that's an option.)

    Love the food and have been several times, however, our waitress this time offered several options as if they were included with our dishes and then charged us with extra. For instance, she asked if we wanted vegetable or cumin rice with the lamb grill we ordered, and we picked vegetable, which ended up being $11. She didn’t ask if we wanted rice, just gave us the two options, so we assumed we got one or the other along with the meal. There was a few other instances of this, and we ended up spending about $30 on extras we didn’t know were extras (and wouldn’t have gotten otherwise). Everything tasted phenomenal, however. It was just frustrating when we got the bill.

    Had a lovely time sitting outside with friends. Service was excellent overall. We did feel a little rushed at the beginning because our server kept checking in with us too frequently, encouraging us to place our next order. It was nice chatting with Agnes a bit later on. Food was delicious as always as were the specialty cocktails.

    Great dinner! Food and service were top-notch. Didn’t realize when I made the reservation for outdoor dining that we would be sitting on the sidewalk. They did offer to seat us inside, but we stuck with outdoor. All in all a great meal. We will be back.

    We were seated and waitress took our drink and appetizer order. Appetizer came quickly while our drinks took 35 minutes to get to the table. My entrée came later then 15 minutes later my sides and part of my wife's food was delivered. Then several minutes later the rest of my wife's food which at the time we were speaking with the manager and there was a long hair in my wife's food and they had to prepare the dish again. Let's just say we packed all our food in containers and left. Usually a great place and I know things happen but too many mistakes with so many places to eat around. I always in the past have recommended friends and family but will not until I see a change in the place.

    The food is delish and unmatched. The servings keep shrinking although it’s very expensive. The inside is cozy, warm and beautiful. The booth in front of ours closest to the register an employee was talking loudly on their cellphone most of the time which was irritating

    We came back after a few years. The food and service is good, but, it was a very expensive meal for what we ordered. Unfortunately there is a bad sewer smell in the hallway to the restrooms, and that is not a good way to start a fancy meal, since it’s right by the kitchen too. It lost its magic.

    My husband and I went to Kama Bistro for our anniversary. It was our first time there. We were so incredibly impressed with everything! From the tandoori lambchops, to the okra, to the tikka masala, to just everything. Our server, Agnes, was so very kind, professional and made us feel special, like family. All of the people who worked there were very accommodating. It was a very pleasant and easy atmosphere. The decor is beautiful. The parking is easy. There is nothing more to say other than, this is a fantastic spot!

    We went to Mother's Day Brunch at Kama Bistro. My daughter and I wanted something completely different than the traditional American pancakes and sliced ham buffet. We're glad we went to KB. Neither of us knew much about Indian food. It was a little confusing. Appetizers, salad, American waffles and a few desserts were laid out on a buffet table. We had some tastes of these and then we sat down at our table. The waitress brought us a sample--3 tacos that were delicious. One was stuffed with lamb, another with a breadfruit and tamarind sauce (my favorite) and the last I think was a spicy chicken. After drinking and munching tacos, we were then served small platers of typical Indian dishes of chicken, fish, lamb, vegetables, rice, and naan. All of the dishes were delicious. If you wanted more of a dish, they brought it to you. The sauces were unbelievable. So why did I rate it with 4 stars instead of 5? While we loved the entrees, we didn't care for the desserts or drinks (non-alcoholic) nor appetizers. We're Hispanic and tacos just don't fit very well in an Indian cuisine. None the less, my daughter and I enjoyed the novelty of Indian cuisine on Mother's Day. It was a good choice!
